Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are expected to change driving perspectives once they are available in the markets. This type of vehicle has received substantial attention lately from media and researchers. This technology is still under rapid advancements, and further research studies are needed to address the potential outcomes, opportunities, and challenges. The fuel system of the AVs is expected to be electrical; therefore, this study addresses the current status of electric vehicles (EVs), including charging time, charging type, and driving range. The study also discusses the barriers that may hindrance the transformation to AVs from the users, planners, and government perspectives. These barriers include the current charging stations of EVs, which provide 2kW power. These stations can be insufficient for the AVs since these cars are expected to utilize advanced sensors and computers. The authors also propose comprehensive recommendations that could facilitate the so-called transformation of EVs to AVs and AVs' associated marketing. The authors found out that conducting a survey is essential to observe the public perception, and marketing and communication plans are essential to educating the public regarding AVs’ features and advantages. Also, a collaboration between auto manufacturers and planners is critical to the success of these vehicles. Finally, a public survey which consisted of 95 participants were conducted to examine the general perspective as surveys are necessary to assist planners, governments and automakers for their future movement toward a sustainable transportation system.
